A young man is sexually assaulted. He subdues, punishes, then befriends his own attacker while confronting his past and the ambiguities of sexuality. Part fiction, part autobiography and part dream, Friend of a Friend attempts to broaden the conversation around abuse and its motivations and implications, as well as the survivor vs. assailant dynamic and results of ostracism.
